The masterpiece collection
Christiane Vleugels lives up to her surname ‘Vleugels’, which means ‘wings’ and is related to flying. Throughout her lifetime and career, she has risen even higher toward light and love, her star in the art world following suit. Since joining the IBEX Masterpiece Project a few years ago, she has produced three masterpieces, each new one surpassing the other.
Kiki Kim, Chief Curator of the IBEX Collection notes: “This triptych is Christiane, and Christiane is this triptych. A mother of five children, she is brimming with love and good cheer, always surrounded by friends in her kitchen or painting studio. Her paintings emanate her warmth, and even this series of potentially cerebral representations of the concepts of ‘faith, hope and love’, has remained every inch human and relatable, with messages for every viewer. As is often the case in Christiane’s practice, the three models have all been profoundly touched by the modeling process.”
